Namita Nayyar, President Women Fitness talks to Andrea Calle about her fitness journey and she shares her motivational tips.
Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You are one of the biggest experts in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) and host of the well-known ‘Combate Americas’. Walk us through your incredible journey?
Ms. Andrea Calle:
I started seven years ago with a show called El Octágono, the owners had the vision of making the face of the show the first Latina covering the sport of MMA, and they gave me the chance. Being the first female Latina covering the sport open a lot of doors and gave me the chance to cover all major promotions. 4 years ago I got an email from a very well known gentleman in MMA, Mr. Campbell McLaren, co-founder of the UFC and CEO of Combate Americas. It was really exciting what he had to offer. He wanted me to host his reality show “Combate Américas”. It has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life. I got to host with big celebrities like “Chino y Nacho”, “Daddy Yankee” and Royce Gracie. Now I’m one of the commentators for Combate Américas live events and it has been a total blessing for me. I love what I do, I love the people I work with and I can truly say I love my work.
